The President, the Pill, and Religious Liberty in Peril

Posted on

In 1808, President Thomas Jefferson stated the matter bluntly: “I consider the government of the United States as interdicted by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises.”

Fast forward 204 years and President Barack Obama has reversed that logic, ordering religious institutions to provide insurance coverage for employees that must include contraceptives, including those that may induce an abortion.

Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of the Department of Health and Human Services made the announcement January 20, stating: “Today the department is announcing that the final rule on preventive health services will ensure that women with health insurance coverage will have access to the full range of the Institute of Medicine’s recommended preventive services, including all FDA-approved forms of contraception.”

The ruling had been much anticipated as a consequence of President Obama’s health care reform. The new law required the administration to determine what elements would be included in the mandated coverage. The administration first determined that the preventative care provision would include coverage of contraceptives. The second step was determining that this coverage would include, as Secretary Sebelius restated it, “all FDA-approved forms of contraception.” These include drugs known as Plan B, which is taken after the possibility of fertilization, thus functioning as an inducer of abortion.

    The War on Religion by Obama will be his great loss. The Catholic Church, together with other Christian faiths simply will not compromise, and openly violate the Commandment which forbids the killing of another human being. The Church has a history of persecution by England, the French Revolution, and the Spanish Civil War where many Priests aned Nuns were slaughtered. Obama has picked the wrong fight this time. Obama is a Muslim Anti-Christ. His Pastor is the fool who screams “damn America,” and Obama is doing all he can to damn this Christian Country. God bless America. Psalm 109 is the one for betrayers like Obama. Verse 8: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” When Obama is not re-elected, he will taste the bitterness of defeat. He is the face of Satan himself.
